Thanks Mike.
Great idea.
My friend Jake is casting a few of those tires for cheap.
His molds look really good too.
If anyone needs any tires,I can point you in his direction.

Great info. Mike!!! I have a set of the Aoshima tires and wheels that I bought at the LHS. I was told that they are the same as in the Toyota Hilux Double Cab. Is this correct??? Just curious.

Mike,

Thanks for the listing and sizes, it will come in handy.

To add to your list here, The Modelhaus has some nice resin tires too. They have the Goodyear Suburbanite snow tires found in the old Jeep kits as well as a really nice Sand Radial (not sure which kit it is from) along with some Sand Paddle tires. I think they have some others but I can't find my latest catalog.

I think there are some other resin casters offering tires as well but I can't think of them right now.

Thanks again.

I just bought a set of the 38 inch TSL tires to put on my model 197x Scout II. This will look very close to the real thing sitting in my back yard. I have been working on the real one for almost 5 years. and its still not done. wonder how long the model will take.

anyway - I got the tires from RPP hobby. they got it out quick and they look great - I could not have been happier.
